Images of a refugee attack

Nato has acknowledged that one of its planes mistakenly bombed a refugee convoy in southern Kosovo on Wednesday.

But while it has apologised for the action, it has also disputed a second alleged attack for which it says it is not responsible.

More than 60 refugees are reported to have been killed in at least two attacks in the province.

Nato has admitted that one of its missiles struck a convoy - but it is unclear which convoy was hit.

Pictures from both blasts show vehicles destroyed.
